AKA: NorthEast Inset. Just left of the Red Wall route (bolted line) on the North Face of the 2nd Pinnacle (outside of the Amphitheatre) there is a right-tending groove or prehaps what could be called a smooth clean gully. This can be climbed to the summit. There are few moves of consequence, and these can be reasonable protected. As the route becomes more runout, it also gets easier. A safe, but perhaps heady lead for the moderate climber. To descend, rap West from an eye-bolt at the top of this tower.
A standard light rack ought to give you a piece or two to place, but the route is somewhat runout regardless. It is very easy where the runout is considerable.
